This is going to set back ballpark marriage proposals for a while.
Thanks, Kanye West.
The rapper made a move straight out of the Buddy Garrity playbook (“Have you ever seen two people engaged on a JumboTron?”), renting AT&T Park in San Francisco and popping the marital question/demand (“PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!”) to girlfriend Kim Kardashian on Monday night. The moment was captured on the JumboTron (duh) and an orchestra provided tunes.
Yeezus proposed to the mother of his daughter North West, according to E! Online, “in front of friends and family” on Kardashian’s birthday. Evidently there was some sort of enormous diamond (other than the field at AT&T) involved (15 carats, TMZ says).
Not to put a damper on this, but Kardashian has been married twice before, most recently for 72 days to Kris Humphries of the Boston Celtics. They divorced early this year and you can compare and contrast the Kris vs. Kanye engagement bling here.
